The Science Behind Being An Empath
Empaths are people who
have the ability to feel what another person is feeling, and their abilities
may be linked to the electromagnetic fields that
surround us all. This is because empaths are particularly sensitive to the
electromagnetic field, and this could mean that they are more likely to
have paranormal experiences. If you think that you may be an empath, here are some things you need to know.
Signs That Indicate That
You Are An Empath
There are a few clear
signs that indicate that you are an empath. Two of the main indicators
are extra sensory perception of any kind and
mystical experiences of any kind, as empaths tend to be more emotionally in
touch with their environment and everything around them.
Why Are You An Empath?
Recent research has
found that both the heart and the brain create electromagnetic fields, and the
HeartMath Institute believe that the fields are used to transmit
information about thoughts and emotions. It is possible that empaths are more
sensitive to this information than other people.
It is also very likely
that electromagnetic fields around the sun and earth also affect empaths more than the average
person. This could mean that when the electromagnetic fields around
the earth and sun change, the state of an empath’s mind and emotional state may
Neuroscience also offers
the suggestion of mirror cell theory. Mirror cells
are those that make it possible for humans to mirror emotions, allowing them to
feel another person’s joy or sadness. As empaths are very emotionally sensitive
it is likely that they have hyper-responsive mirror neurons. This could be
why empaths are driven to help other
The final theory is
increased dopamine sensitivity. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter than increases
neuron activity, and research has found that introverted empaths have a
higher sensitivity to dopamine than people who are extroverted.
How To Live A Happy Life
It can be tough to be an
empath, but it is very possible for you to live a happy life – you simply need
to put your own needs first. This means that you can be there for others
without risking your own happiness. This may feel difficult to begin with, but
if you set boundaries it will be easier for you to spend time with your loved
ones. You should also be aware of your limitations.
